Is anyone using the Specialized RC battery tray and the Orion 3800 lipo's?

Any ideas on how to keep the lipo's from flopping around?

Josh,
How much do you go into making sure the car is balanced front - back and left - right.
I use small scales and try to the the left right within 3 grams.
If you do this is it the last thing after all the other set ups ie. droop, ride height ...
Thanks for all your help
God Bless

If your referring to the PPD Billet battery tray?
http://www.ppdbillet.com/RC_accessories.html

If so I use velcro on battery tray and battery itself then secure battery strap with screws. You can get it tight and it will not budge. Ever!

I am having a problem with the shocks. I have already had to rebuild 2 shocks, one of them twice. The orange rubber washer will not stay seated. Is this a common problem or is there a trick to getting it to stay where it belongs. I have assembled per the instructions and the orange washer seems to pop out on its own. Is there another TC brand that has less of this kind of problem?

Hey guys, can someone give me some detail on how the slipper spool works? Is it just a diff with no balls? Is the thrust and rings still in place? Do you put anything between the rings and the pulley? I'm considering making one (for another car, sorry) and see AE already has it all figured out.

Slipper spool is like those used in the offroad scene. Its a diff without the balls, and instead some sort of material that does not slip, which replaces the diff rings.

Does anyone know where to find a P-Dub bumper for the TC5? After a year of racing, I need a new bumper and my old P-Dub is cracked.
